't tank the economy, that will increase the likelihood of economic growth?" and so, the problem now facing the country and the candidates is we're going to elect a candidate who is going to govern by asking us to make choices that we haven't anticipated. and as a result, we're going to feel betrayed to some extent, even if we voted for that candidate. >> the debates were the most watched in a long time. your field intersects politics and entertainment. do you think entertainment values had something to do with this? >> well, i think suspense was what was required down to the wire. and that's what we got. one won one, another won another. then a couple of draws. what could be better for keeping people watching? unfortunately, the lack of an answer to who sacrifices what is only the beginning of an endless list that, for me, is a reason to be disappointed, not just in the debates, but in the entire campaign. i want to find out about things that are important, about plutocracy taking over democracy, the widening gulf between the powerful and the powerless. wall street, global warming, on and
? >> i think the economy has improved, and we are not in an emergency situation. the reality remains that the congressional republican party is for a much against immigration reform, so if the president is reelected, i think he will have a tremendous amount of support and an obligation to fulfill some promises, and that will be one of his priorities going forward. tavis: what happens if this does not become a major priority for him to? >> i think that would be a problem. i think he would lose a lot of support, and people would be betrayed. immigration reform has to be understood by recovery. there are nonpartisan studies that show immigration reform is a mechanism to drive economic growth. it just makes sense to america. there is a and a emotional aspect, and people feel really hurt and pushed away, but at the end of today, it is an economic issue, and that is the way it has to be framed. tavis: tell me why you believe they will take a different tack if mr. obama wins. if the president wins, he wins with a significant slice. the overwhelming majority of latinos will have voted for hi
program. i do believe that's one of the reasons the economy is sluggish now. it was 2012 where the banks started increasing their loan. if you make the banks all profitable again it will take care of the rest of the economy and it doesn't work that way. >> rose: so you're not happy with the tarp program which others see as a success? >> how do you define "success?" we didn't go over the cliff. >> rose: and a lot of the loans have been paid back. >> on a cash-flow basis the tarp investment money has made money. if you look at it from a subs key standpoint-- in order, if citypaid 5% dividend, if they had to go to the market what would they have had to pay? it will never turn a profit on that basis. >> rose: the financial structure was so bad the interest rates would have been so high. >> people differ on how they measure costs, and i think, again, on a subsidy basis, if you looked at subsidies, they would not have made my -- >> rose: there is this. whenever i read about you during that time or whenever i talked to you, whenever i sat next to you at some event, the central thing i said abou

transparency, people's involvement in these urban change decisions. but behind it lies the fact that economy is booming so fast that no one can control it anymore. for me the ahasing thing is that i can say that in relation to "silent house" is that i've been living for 60 years. there've vn times that i've come back this or that that the change i saw in the first 45 years less than the change i saw in the last 15 years. >> wow. how is it different? change in the last 15? is it just velocity? >> velocity. immense economical -- political change is more development of say -- development of free speech and liberal society and because of economics and it's hard to control turkey anymore. it's so rich and coming that it's hard to crush it down and control it. >> rose: as i a writer do you -- and because of the run in you had you were criticized for criticizing turkey, correct? >> yes. >> rose: they arrested you. >> no. >> rose: well, they didn't arrest you but -- >> i was fined but then it was dropped because of international pressure. >> rose: exactly. i understand that. do you fear at all now w
and republican presidential hopeful mitt romney debated issues of foreign policy and the economy, we turn to world-renowned political dissident, linguist, author, and mit professor noam chomsky. in a recent speech, professor chomsky examined topics largely ignored or glossed over during the campaign -- from china to the arab spring, to global warming and the nuclear threat posed by israel versus iran. he spoke last month at the university of massachusetts in amherst, at any event sponsored by the center for popular economics. his talk was entitled, "who owns the world?" >> when i was thinking about these remarks, i had two topics in mind. i could not decide between them. pretty obvious ones. one topic is, what are the most important issues that we face? the second topic is, what issues are not being treated seriously or at all in the quadrennial frenzy now under way called in election? but i realize that there is no problem. it is not a hard choice. they are the same topic. there are reasons for it, which are very significant in and of themselves. i would like to return to that in a momen
decision that they were not going to run on that record and instead, i guess because they @see the economy is very fragile and because they did not want to take the design had on, they ended up dueling with romney over who was more enthusiastic about drilling oil and mining coal. >> and a comment by governor romney, though he does not like to seem toemind d of this, when he famously said at the republican convention in his nomination -- acceptance speech, "my promise is to help you and your family" after saying president obama slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. my promise is to help you and your family. interesting how those two issues have merged. >> they have merged because as it pointed out in our article, there are an awful lot of famili in new jersey, on staten island, elsewhere in the mid-atlantic who right now need an awful lot of help and a lot ensive help, by the way, as a result of the rising oceans. when you have higher sea levels, the storm that whips up the sea is going to do more damage. that opposition that romney tried to set up really is a false one print th
't know what to study so the first university i went to was economy university. i did it for a year. then two years of law. basically i didn't really know what i wanted to do. and it seemed the right thing that my parents said as long as you study we will pay for everything. so i did this university for three years. and then i had a stint at san diego, california, which is a place that i really adore. but i guess i was looking more for a new york energy and it didn't have it. so i then went to london, 1976, to study kpun cases. i went to california to do international relations then went to london-- it was really just any excuse to be able to be kept by my parents in a way. in london i fell into photography. >> rose: how did you fall into it. >> it's a really funny story. i believe so much that things come to you. and basically i went to a friend's house for lunch and there was a foted owe of himself on his mantle piece. and i said what a great photograph. and he told me this girl studying photography here took it. i said i have always heard of this girl i would love to meet her. i
moving rapidly towards ebooks and the economy of ebooks is much more attractive no paper cost no printing, no contribution cost, no returns. >> no returns. >> huge advance, so at what point do publishers say hey, i have-- it's crazy to me economically to be publishings and printing booksing printing books, not publishing ebooks that is such a good point because in most other countries there were no hard bound booksment we did hard cover to help our p & l, our profit and loss statement. i do think that the hard cover book will start to diminish in quantity, yes. i don't believe that the publisher, that a true publisher will ever give up on printing physical books. >> i disagree with that. >> but, well, but i will talk to you about that. because i think that there will always be a want and a need for a certain group of society to have the printed book. and perhaps the printed book will become even more expensive and more valuable because it will be printed better and it will be done on better paper, et cetera. but i think the point of marketing is where this is all, where this all comes to.
leaders expect the europe economy will contract next year by 4.5%. they're urging their creditors to lease rescue loans as soon as possible. but many greeks are growing increasingly frustrated with the severely of the cuts. major unions announced a 48 hour general strike for next week. >>> while the eu pressures greece, its own spending poli policies are undefined in britain. members of prime minister's david cameron's own party backed an opposition amendment calling for a smaller eu budget. opposition lawmakers say increasing funding for the regional body is unacceptable. the eu plans to expand its budgets for seven years starting in 2014. prime minister cameron had been surging members of parliament to back a spending freeze. >> and i'm quite prepared to use the veto if we don't get a deal that's good for britain. let's be clear, mr. speaker, it is in our interest to try to get a deal because a seven-year freeze would keep our bills down compared to annual budgets. >> the amendment passed with support from the main opposition labor party and several dozen members of cameron's ruling cons
